The first words that came out of my mouth when I received this book were, “It’s pretty!”
Amazingly eloquent, I know.
But, pretty, indeed, this book is. And even more so once color is lovingly added to its pages.
Whatever is Lovely is a collection of coloring pages put out by WaterBrook Press in the hope to “help you train your mind to be still, to focus, to quiet the world around you, and to open yourself up to how God wants to speak to you.”
Featuring pictures by a variety of talented artists, the book is filled with delightful pages, each one with a scripture or quote from a blog or hymn. Authors and hymn writers whose quotes appear in the book include Isaac Watts, Lysa Terkeurst, Liz Curtis Higgs, Frannie Crosby, Emily Freeman, Francine Rivers, and many more.
The pages are on a variety of subjects, so there’s something in here for everyone! From animals, to flowers, to sunrises, to landscapes, this book reflects the diversity and beauty of God’s creation.
Thumbing through the thick pages, I realized the completed coloring pages would make lovely gifts. Framing a completed page that features a friend’s favorite verse or a fitting quote would be an excellent little way to show how much you care. Not to mention, you get to have fun doing it!
As a bonus, this book also provides readers with a link to a Spotify playlist to listen to as they color. This playlist is designed to help you get the most out of the coloring experience as you meditate on God’s word and listen to Him.
If you’re in the market for something to do on the blustery, winter nights ahead, or if you’re still wrapping up your Christmas shopping, or if you just need something to pass a few spare moments in solitude, check out Whatever Is Lovely.
